Classic View for XP

I just installed Windows XP, but I really don’t like the new look. Is there a way to make XP look like my earlier versions of Windows or am I stuck?

Actually, you can switch it to the “classic” look with just a few strokes of your mouse.

Right-click a blank area on the desktop and select Properties from the resulting menu. Hit the Appearance tab and you’ll see a drop box labeled ” Windows and buttons .”

Select ” Windows Classic Style ” from that box, hit OK and in a few seconds things will be back to looking like they used to.


Personally, I kind of like the new look, but to each their own I guess.
